Americans have long been clamoring for their government to address the massive humanitarian crisis that is taking place on the southern border, but to no avail.
The Biden administration has been particularly negligent on the subject, even after assigning Vice President Kamala Harris to the role of “border czar”.
Now that the 2024 electoral cycle is underway, former President and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is revealing his plan to battle Mexico’s trafficking cartels at the border, and it’s a far cry from anything that the current administration is working on.
Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News exclusively that he supports a proposal from Reps. Michael Waltz (R-FL) and Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) that would authorize the use of military force against Mexican drug cartels to target the criminal enterprises and dismantle them.
“I would do that,” Trump said when asked about the congressmen’s Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) legislation that they have recently proposed.
Trump also suggested that he wouldn’t be alone in the fight.
“I also have a very good relationship with the president of Mexico,” Trump told Breitbart News. “He’s a socialist but he also happens to be a gentleman. You can’t have everything, right? But he’s a great person. Certainly, I would deal with him. This is an invasion of our country — this isn’t just people walking over. This is an invasion. Many of these are people we do not want in our country. They’re very bad for our country. They’re very bad and dangerous. But this is an invasion of our country. Nope, we will stop it and we will stop it immediately.”
Trump has previously suggested that he would designate the cartels as “terrorist organizations” in order to implement his plan of utilizing US military forces to tackle them.
